Subject: I have to agree with the previous reviewer
This recording is by far my favorite piece of Mogwai music, bar none.
Killer quality recording and superb performance.
If you don't have it, get it...nuff said.
Reviewer: simeyjoe - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - August 17, 2015
Subject: Superb soundboard recording - probably better than the official live album
This is by far the best quality of any Mogwai gig recording I have heard. The sound it pretty much crystal clear even in the most noisy and saturated passages, that often get lost in 'mush' on other recordings. There's plenty of dynamic range, and being a soundboard recording there's no annoying audience chatter. Not necessarily my favourite set list (too many 'songs' among the tunes for my liking) but there are some of their best numbers here.

Subject: Excellent remaster
The music is moving and majestic, the quality of the recording is superb. If you are curious at all about Mogwai, this is a very good recording to DL!

perfect - this is really as close as I've heard from just about any bootleg. I agree with the above that they could release this, but they should at least point fans to it here on the IA. I'd recommend this to long time fans as well as for those just wanting to discover why Mogwai has the rabid following that they have. I've always had a special love for recorded live shows, and this is a perfect example of why.

From the intro to the chaos of "My Father, My King", this is a glorious piece of music.
Reviewer: Sam Hunt - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - December 9, 2007
Subject: Uh, is this even possible?
I listen to more live recordings than studio albums for bands that I listen to most. I must say that this is definitely the best sound quality I've heard on the archive, and if the band or Matador heard this, they must be tempted to release it as an official live boot. Amazing, amazing sound, ridiculously clear and real-sounding. Holy fuck, man. This is a Mogwai fan's dream cum true. And, whoever recorded this caught them on one of the best setlists of the Mr. Beast tour - we have here wonderful versions of "Long Way," "Helicon 1," "Jesus," not to mention MFMK which only appeared on like ten setlists out of 118 on this tour. AN ABSOLUTE GEM. INSURMOUNTABLE IN GREATNESS!!

Subject: live album quality
This is a fantastic quality sound. Mogwai could easily use it for a live disc if they so chose, it is that good. Not to mention the quality performance of the band which is awesome! Easily one of the best shows on the archive, a MUST for any fan.
Reviewer: chromakode - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - April 28, 2007
Subject: Must-have
As the other reviewers have said, this is an intense concert recording -- if not the best I've ever heard here on archive.org. The sound is really balanced, and the soundboard + remastering sound crystal clear. Mogwai's performance is wonderful here, and the high sound quality is just icing on the cake. Amazing!!

Subject: :OOOOOOOOOOOOO
MY LORD this is a beautiful remaster ... this could pass as a studio album ... i love Mogwai, and this is the best fucking show i've heard posted here. GET THIS if you give a shit about Mogwai at all. After listening ... you sure as hell will.

Thank you to those who made this remaster possible!

Subject: Top notch
Great quality, definitely wortt grabbing.

Track 11, however, is mislabeled. It's 'Travel Is Dangerous', not 'Travels In Constants'.
Reviewer: murasamune - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - January 1, 2007
Subject: really good quality
the sound quality is amazing, mogwai sounds great; mogwai definitely arent known for their singer(s), but here they sound as good as they've ever sounded. great great show.
Reviewer: ravedob - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 22, 2006

The sound quality here is phenomenal. I think this is my favorite recording of Helicon 1 I've heard--not to be missed.
